A lightweight resin top-whorl spindle in a cutterfly design on a transparent background.  The web is a custom-cut vinyl piece, applied over the clear spindle whorl.  The whorl is in our slimline 'saucer' style design, which is lighter than our standard whorls, making the spindle perfect for spinning fine yarns.  The spindle has a cherry wood shaft.  The whorl is notched to the back of the hook. Total weight is 17g.  

The handmade hook is in a swan-neck style, which balances the yarn properly above the centre of the spindle. Long shaft, so you can fit plenty of yarn on this spindle. Has been test spun to ensure it has good balance.

This spindle is supplied with a robust custom-made shipping container, which also acts as a handy carrying case for later. The resin used for the whorl contains a UV protectant, however for longest life without yellowing, we recommend that you store your spindle away from direct sunlight. Whorl diameter is approx 5.5cm. Shaft length is approx 24cm.
